    Some immigrants are re-arrested 6 times

    WASHINGTON - Illegal immigrants who were caught but released in the United States may have been re-arrested as many as six times, Justice Department data released Monday indicates.


    The findings by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine are based on a sampling of 100 illegal immigrants arrested by local and state authorities in 2004, the latest complete data available. They show that 73 of the 100 immigrants were arrested, collectively, 429 times — ranging from traffic tickets to weapons and drug charges.

    Fine's office said its audit could not conclude precisely how many of the 262,105 illegal immigrants charged with criminal histories that year had been re-arrested. "But if this data is indicative of the full population of 262,105 criminal histories, the rate at which released criminal aliens are re-arrested is extremely high," the audit noted.

    The audit was required by Congress in 2005, and parts of it were redacted because of security reasons. It looked at how local and state authorities that receive Justice Department funding to help catch and detain illegal immigrants are working with the Homeland Security Department.

    It also examined the arrest rates of immigrants who were released — usually because of insufficient jail space — before they could be turned over to Homeland Security's bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    In all, 752 cities, counties and states participating in the program received $287 million in 2005, the audit noted. Five states — California, New York, Texas, Florida and Arizona — received the bulk of the money, together pulling in more than $184 million.

    Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff four months ago declared an end to the "catch and release" practice that for years helped many illegal immigrants stay in the United States unhindered.

    At the time, the department was holding 99 percent of non-Mexican illegal immigrants in its custody until they could be returned to their home nations. The policy generally does not apply to Mexicans, who are almost immediately returned to Mexico after being stopped by Border Patrol agents.

    The audit also looked at whether local and state authorities fully cooperated with Homeland Security efforts to remove illegal immigrants, and tried to determine how many had been released because of jail space or funding shortages. In both cases, Fine's office said it was unable to draw definitive conclusions.

    It also found that at least one area — San Francisco — was receiving funding even though local policy specifically limits the information it gives to Homeland Security about immigration enforcement. San Francisco, which won $1.1 million, defines itself as a "city and county of refuge" and does not allow federal agents to view immigration jail records without permission from local police.

    Assistant Attorney General Regina B. Schofield, who oversees the Office of Justice Programs, declined comment on the audit, noting it does not contain any recommendations

    Great post, there’s more stories like these that are being suppressed by the media daily. You would think that the media outlets would love to cover these sensational stories as front page news.
    But the kiss ass corp. media has been largely silent on these issues.
    Congress and the W's refusal to address these issues is nothing short of treason.


    WILL IGNORING ILLEGALS INVASION FOSTER VIGILANTISM?

    By: Devvy Kidd

    As the carnage from drunk, unlicensed, illegal aliens continues to mount, some wonder if the refusal by Congress and Bush to stop this full blown invasion will lead to such frustration, Americans begin to take action on their own? The recent tragedy below once again underscores the massive failure by the Republican controlled Congress to get the job done during the 12 years they held the majority. There's no question Bush has never wanted the borders sealed and exposure of the treasonous plans for a North American Union has left the Emperor naked.

    Christ-mas becomes a funeral. Tragically, a mother and two children were senselessly killed, no, murdered, by another drunk who is suspected of being in this country illegally. Carlos Prieto is not an immigrant. If confirmed he smuggled himself across our border, his legal status is illegal alien. This drunk has been charged with three counts of vehicular manslaughter for DUI and, surprise, surprise, no drivers license and you can forget insurance. One half of an entire family wiped out. The father and two other children were hurt, but thanks to God's mercy, they survived. This sickening event happened Christ-mas eve in Salt Lake City, Utah. No surprise: records show Prieto had already been arrested twice for DUIs. How many more, America? How much more American blood will run in the streets to appease corrupt politicians, minority voting blocks and corporations like Swift who hire illegals?

    On December 29, 2006, another illegal alien being hunted for wounding two policemen in Long Beach, California and who had already been previously deported, ended in violence. Oscar Gabriel Gallegos was shot and killed by police who found him at a taco stand. This Mexican national who "just wanted to find work to better his life" by smuggling himself across our border, was carrying two fully loaded magazines including his .40-caliber Glock. The two officers shot by Gallegos was pulled over when he ran a red light and decided to shoot it out. Over the past 16 years, this illegal alien has been charged repeatedly with drug and weapons violations. Due to the complete lack of decisive action by Congress since 1986, all presidents in between and the four border governors, criminal trash like Prieto and Gallegos have been able to destroy lives with impunity and treat our borders as nothing more than a revolving door.

    For those who think the "new" Democrat controlled Congress will stop this carnage, think again. Along with pro-illegal extremists like John McCain and gutless governors like Napolitano, Schwarzenegger, Perry and Richardson, the situation is going to get much, much worse. Americans are becoming beyond frustrated as more and more innocent mothers, daughters, fathers and sons are slaughtered by these criminals, not to mention stealing jobs that rightfully belong to Americans and the direct correlation between illegals and depressing wages for the middle class.

    As I wrote this column, there was the continuing discussion on Lou Dobbs about this invasion. Gag bag political pundit, Ed Rollins said he "wasn't sure if the American people are tired of the illegals issue" and no one really knows what to do about the eleven million already here. Bull. These DC mouthpieces are so far out of touch with the American people, it's pathetic. The numbers are closer to 15 million and we do know what to do - the same thing a former president did and yes, we are fed up with this invasion being rubbed in our faces. Eisenhower rounded up and deported one million illegal aliens in a year. Don't tell me it can't get done. All it takes is real men and women in state legislatures like Arizona who aren't afraid to stand up to incompetent fools like Gov. Janet Napolitano and extremists like John McCain, betrayer of our POW/MIAs. And, it needs to get done before the spark just waiting to get lit is ignited because none of us want to see our country turned into an Iraq or Kosovo. The solutions are there, we just need those elected public servants in leadership positions to exercise the solutions available to them right now.

    If the state legislatures do not begin taking the lead in rounding up these illegals and standing up to Congress and Bush, the situation is likely to get very out of control. Americans will only allow lawlessness for so long before they can't take it anymore. I urge the citizens of every state in this Union: begin to make plans to start doing what Jodi Waters did in California over the MTBE issue and the great folks in Tennessee did to stop a state personal income tax - both 100% victories. Start surrounding the state houses and demand the state militias be reconstituted under the control of the state legislature and do what the feds won't. Is this legal? Absolutely, and let me quote from one of Dr. Edwin Vieira's scholarly columns on this very issue:

    "Second, although "the Militia of the several States" are State institutions, the States cannot dispense with them, either, because the Constitution presupposes their permanence, and the Constitution is "the supreme Law of the Land". Article VI, Clause 2. Obviously, if the States could dissolve their Militia at will, they could erase Congress's power to "call[ ] forth the Militia". They could render unfulfillable the duty of the United States to "guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government" and to "protect each of them against Invasion; and * * * against domestic Violence". Article IV, Section 4. And they could even disarm themselves from "engag[ing] in War" when "actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay", because (absent dispensation from Congress) they would have no other armed forces to deploy. Article I, Section 10, Clause 3."

    If you don't have time to read Edwin's series on this solution, you can get it on CD for $2 bucks (see here, scroll down to bottom) and get educated while driving or playing on a CD in your home while doing chores. The states can no longer sit back and allow this cancer to multiply, killing innocent Americans at a rate of 12 per day. As local municipalities pass ordinances to fight this invasion, they are being pummeled by anti-American operations like the ACLU and pro-illegal, pro-criminal organizations determined to facilitate this invasion and take over our republic. As for those men who have sent me mail each time I do a column on the state militias telling me they don't have time to do their duty, let me quote from the magnificent movie, Open Range. Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall are talking to some men who live in this town. The discussion is about how things are going to Hell. Costner says, "Why don't you do something about it?" One man says, "We're freighters, Ralph here is a shopkeeper." Costner replies, "You're men ain't you?" The man says, "I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed." Kevin Costner replies, "You may not know this but, there's, ah, things that gnaw at a man worse than dying." Well, you're men, aren't you? Then act like it instead of expecting someone else to fulfill your duty to your country. Freedom always comes with a price. Pay it or live on your knees in shame.



    In addition to the carnage and economic destruction consequences of this invasion, we must not forget the national security threat because we know terrorists are coming across the border and setting up cells. This brings me to the feedback from my last column on Keith Ellison, a Muslim who is to be sworn into office next week to serve in the U.S. Congress. My mail box was full of drivel about bigotry and encouragement from Hindi's who insist their Holy Gita book be made the Holy Book of America! For those bleeding hearts out there who sent me mail accusing me of bigotry and for not being "tolerant" of Muslims, they need to read a superb analysis on Keith Ellison and the organizations he supports. There's an old saying: lie down with dogs, get up with fleas. Robert Spencer's column, A Bigot in Congress? is here and I hope you will read it and share it with your mailing lists. There's more to Ellison than what's been sold by flunkies in the "mainstream media" who call themselves reporters and journalists.



    As I pointed out in my last column: pay attention to what has happened to France and England once they allowed unchecked immigration by Muslims into their countries. I provided readers with links to substantiate what happens once the numbers get big enough to riot and demand these countries give up their heritage, their laws and customs to kiss the prayer rugs of militant Muslims. Try going to Iran, Iraq or Saudi Arabia and demand they convert their country to a Christian nation and see what happens. You're likely to lose your head by morning. Look at what happened to two pastors in Australia for allegedly vilifying Muslims when they quoted from their so-called Holy Book, the Quran; see here. Think this isn't coming to these united States of America? Think again, it's just a matter of time and Ellison is the camel sticking his nose in the tent.

    WHY THE MAYOR OF HAZELTON, PA. IS RIGHT

    By: Devvy Kidd
    September 14, 2006

    The American Communist Lawyers Union (ACLU) has once again taken the side of lawlessness by attacking the mayor of Hazelton, Pennsylvania for his stand on the illegals invasion. Mayor Louis Barletta understands what the word illegal means and crafted new laws to do what Congress has refused to do: uphold Art. 4, Section IV of the U.S. Constitution which reads:

    The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

    The new ordinance would require anyone attempting to rent must obtain a residency permit at city hall. If the individual's background check cannot verify or confirm they are U.S. citizens or legal aliens, they would be prohibited from living in Hazelton. Landlords who thumb their nose at the law by renting to illegals would be fined as well as employers who would lose their business license for a period of five years. Topping off this long overdue action by a local municipality, the ordinance would mandate English as the official language of Hazelton and that includes refusing to saddle natural born or naturalized citizens with wasteful spending in the form of printing city information in any language except English.
